Get the Basics in Economics from the IMF’s One-Stop Shop


The IMF’s Finance & Development magazine has just come out with a useful web compilation of stories in its “Back to Basics” series on economics.

The page is aimed at students, academics, and those seeking a broader understanding of economic ideas. It pulls together articles from the Back to Basics column in the quarterly magazine that have been published since 2003.

Editors at the magazine, which is published in Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish, and Russian, as well as English  have revisited the series, updating and revising where needed, and helpfully compiling the most relevant B2B stories in one place. The series is ongoing and they say they will add new articles as they appear in the magazine.

F&D publishes analysis of topics related to the global crisis, international financial system, monetary policy, economic development, poverty reduction, and other world economic issues.
